Sometimes we don’t usually say what we have already thought out carefully in our minds. Most of the time we just let the words ‘flow-out’ of us. Some people don’t even think before talking, and some even would simply start a conversation by gaping their mouth so wide that you could stick hair-dryer into.

I’m not talking about stuff that you wished you could say to your boss to vent your frustrations, or things that you hoped you have the balls to say to your wife when she is nagging about your mother; or even the sentence you hoped to say to the cop who is giving you the ticket for side-parking in front of the fire hydrant.

Of all the times that you hear people say stuff that you know they shouldn’t, or even the countless times that you open your trap to sound smart to people but ended up being the ‘clown-of-the-day’; nothing beats the moments of embarrassment and/or humiliation that men get when things didn’t go as they had planned in their heads when they decided to ‘pick-up’ a woman in a bar, cafe’ or wherever. I mean wherever because women get picked up a LOT more than men do and almost anywhere these days.

You guys know what I’m talking about. You form the words in your head, you take a deep breath and start walking towards the attractive lady sitting alone in a cafe’. And when you stand there in front of her, the words shines brightly in your head , ‘I didn’t know Angels could fly so low…’…and a few minutes later , you’re back at your table facing the other direction and find your hand slapping yourself on the forehead. Cause you just said ‘ Angels are so low, I didn’t’.

Well, a lot of us went through this. Maybe not exactly in the example given, but quite familiar circumstances to what have been described I’m sure. Sometimes words aren’t the only tool for a man to use to get close to a woman. Funny thing is, I don’t think the words that you say would make much difference, not as much as most guys tend to think at least. But do not misunderstand me, saying something like “I have a hard-drive in my pants that needs some serious clean-up, you look like someone that can help me with this problem” would lower your probability of success even if you look like Collin Farrel. But its’ Collin, so okay, he can say anything and still score…but you get my point.

Since women are getting picked up a lot, they have devised a set of ‘quick-evaluation’ or standards programmed in their mysterious minds whenever they are being approached by the opposite sex.Think about it. If you get people coming up to you and wanted to talk to you just to get to ‘know you better’ on a weekly basis; wouldn’t you be setting certain standards every time it happens.

Wouldn’t you be more prepared for said situations if it comes up again? It’s like playing a video game, you know when and where the bug-eyed aliens will pop-up and you’ll be ready again this time cause you already saved and re-load your game a dozen times so you programmed yourself in the head to be more prepared.

BUT, this ain’t no video game. Once you’re standing in front of a woman and screw things up there are no re-load buttons you could push and save your over-inflated ego. Why did I say words aren’t that important? Because from the moment you walked towards that chick leaning on the bar sipping her brandy-coke, and she notices you coming over; she is already starting her little analysis of you in her head. Sizing you up, expecting the obvious or the most bizarre that could happen next because she’s been through this a dozen or more times than you have. When all this is going through her mind, why would anything that comes out of your mouth would actually matter?

The other reason why I say words don’t matter much at these moments is, well, words mean zilch, if not without the proper Body-Language. Yes, body-language. Same goes for body-language without the proper words coming out of your mouth, that’s why I said ‘words don’t matter much’ ;instead of saying ‘words completely means nothing.

Sometimes though on these occasions, a savoir-faire moment comes to you. And unexpectedly you find yourself ‘renewed’ and a rush flows through your deep consciousness telling you it’s not over. You find yourself reforming your posture, facial expression and tone of voice and suddenly you hear yourself saying, ‘Why are angels so low?,..well. . .they left for heaven without you because you definitely belong up there. In the high heavens, I mean.”

So maybe you’ll get lucky and get a break from the normality and the bizarre things that men are capable of saying which can ruin an awesome opportunity by turning it into an apocalyptic disaster; and change things around at the last minute. So as far as jumbling up the words as we try to form a sentence, the inconsistencies of what to say or must not be said; maybe mixing the two could be. . . rewarding.

And maybe slapping yourself on the forehead isn’t so bad after all since you did get her number, she didn’t blow you off and she actually laughed at your jokes and also believes Barney looks more like a ‘purple pedophiliac-devil’ than a dinosaur.

And maybe, just maybe if you weren’t too over excited with your short-lived ‘victory’ ; you could probably remember to at least ask the the attractive young Eurasian lady for her name. . .

My mind rests for the night, and my Soul takes over, for now…

The most painful or exultant sentences that consists of Four words, there are so many isn’t it? And yet they have different levels of bitterness or jubilance for each sentence, when heard or even read might be the most agonizing point in your life or the most blissful moment for you.

Everyone has been through them all, well technically not everyone.

Let’s start with ‘Can we be friends?’.

Yeah I know, men and women alike have heard these words and strangely it is actually a very friendly sentence when read. And when you hear someone that you have no interest to get romantically involved with say it, it’s cool ain’t it? I mean there is a saying..’Having a 100 friends are too little, but One enemy is one too Many..’ so why not?!! ‘Yeah sure I’d like to be friends’ you might reply.

But this planet does not spin the way we want it to, and sadly Life’s ain’t always Fair. So usually when you hear someone you really,really have the hots for say something like ‘Can we be friends?’, YOU better dig deeper into those ear-lobes and clean it up good cause he/she just said ‘Can‘T we be friends?’. And technically that’s not even four words, it’s just that most people confuse it being 4 words. I mean wouldn’t YOU be when you hear that?

Humans are typical creatures, we usually see or hear only what we want to see and hear. Distressingly as it is we seldom hear those 4-words-sentences that doesn’t make us feel like a melting toxic dump. You know, something that feels you feel all good inside or even give you goose-bumps all over. Something along the line of ‘Come to bed honey..’ would be awesome once and awhile especially after a hot shower [or cool shower, would it matter!?] . Or coming home feeling really hungry and those sweet words of ‘I cooked your favorite…’ could even be more satisfying then the food itself . Or even hearing a sexy voice accompanying the words of ‘Look what I bought..’. ,there won’t any be food but..ahem,ahem!

But somehow why more often you hear 4-words-sentences like ‘It was only once…’and your tiny little spec of world starts crumbling down. Is it really hard to go through a whole month without even hearing words like ‘Your bills are overdue..’, or even ‘We are currently upgrading..’ [I usually cut short this conversation with ‘Upgrading?!!..again!!. Downgrade adalah!!] And yes the occasional violent ones that people would get them all psyched-up for example: ‘That is ****ed up!’ and the more frequently heard ‘That all you got!?’ [Yeah I used it, both in a real fight and while watching wrestling]

Here’s a funny thing about 4-words-sentences, we usually end up saying something that’s also in 4 words in response to what you’ve heard, for instance: ‘I feel like dying..’. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? I even heard a friend of mine a long time ago mope about [half drunk,I think..] saying ‘If I only knew..’ or ‘I never thought he/she…’[this is what I call the Hanging-4-words-sentence’] Feel free to match up which painful or exultant 4-words-sentences with any other you find in this blog. Or better yet match them up with what You yourself have heard or said before.

So what is YOUR most favorite 4-Word-Sentence that you’ve heard or read before? Mine would be : You are my first..😉 Go figure it out.. I’ve heard them all and this is definitely My Favorite!!

So, whats’ the worst that you’ve ever heard then? The one and only Four-Word-Sentence that you wish you never hear someone say to you in this lifetime? Wished and hoped against the very Laws and Physics of the Universe that it never, ever existed. The only Four-Word-Sentence that you despise so much, and believe deep in your mind and soul that insanity, lunacy, suffering, regret, anguish, grief, contempt and sorrow are all born from that very sentence it self?

It echoes in my sleep,

It burns through to my fragile soul,

It never leaves my mind as I weep,

It drives my sanity out of control,

And as I walk in after I knock,

And as my heart and soul ceased to exist,when she said ‘We need to talk…”
